Emerging photographers take note, applications are closing soon for the second intake of the Kingsize Scholarship, designed to give attendees a leg up into a career as a professional photographer. You have until the end of March to apply for a spot on this twelve-week programme to develop all the technical competency, artistic understanding and commercial common sense you need to make your start in the business of photography.
To be in with a shot at this unique opportunity you must put together a portfolio and cover letter to be sent in to Kingsize by 10am, March 31 – see the website for more details.
Beginning April 8, the class will meet every Tuesday evening at Kingsize Studios in Grey Lynn for group critique sessions and talks from guest speakers and industry experts. Photographers will have free access to studios and equipment as well as full support from the expert team at Kingsize to shoot their weekly briefs or assignments.
As well as attending this specialised course, successful applicants will also get free entry to the studio's myriad professional workshops, including Assistant Bootcamp, Film-making for Photographers, Intro to Fashion Photography and a range of studio lighting workshops.
Photographers of all ages and backgrounds are encouraged to apply, including recent graduates, but must be at a point where their career is developing. Also be sure travel and other commitments will not be a barrier to attending and completing the course before applying.
